I tried building a pc for the first time. When I press the power on button on the case the fans spin for a second, my phone can charge through the usb for a second and so forth. I know the motherboard is receiving power because the RAM will light up. The three pin PSU cable that came with the PSU is different to the one i'm using now because the one was for a European plug. Will that change anything? I have already moved RAM around.

Please help

Have you connected the case fans to motherboard only, or to both motherboard and power supply?
I'm not sure if this is correct but currently i've got it set up like this:
Due to it being an NZXT h400i it is a smart case, the fans wires are being attached to the three pin connectors which is goes to the NZXT control hub. The PSU female four pin connector is connected to the motherboard.
 
"The PSU female four pin connector is connected to the motherboard."
I see no header on board for that, or am I wrong? You were supposed to connect the case SATA or molex to power supply, in order to power the control hub.

By PSU female four pin connector you mean the control hub 4 pin FAN connector that would control the fans speed?

The first image is SATA to NZXT hub, Second is the Fan hub connector to the fan fire and the last is a four pin connector in the motherboard.

Hello,
I am building my first computer and when I hit the power button on the case, PSU, GPU and CPU fans, as well as the light strips, motherboard and GPU LEDs all turn on and work fine. A monitor is currently coming so I am using a TV to post. I am using HDMI from my graphics card. Is that OKAY or do I need to use VGA or DVI?

PLEASE HELP
